Lorry driver loses job with Carlisle firm after crash

A bump at traffic lights and the failure to give breath samples to police cost a man his job as a lorry driver in Carlisle.

Sean Connor, 47, admitted driving carelessly and colliding with another car, failing to stop and give his details and failing to provide breath samples to police.

His solicitor Roger Colledge told Dumfries Court that Connor realised the loss of his licence was mandatory and without it there would be no job with his employers in Carlisle.

The accident happened at traffic lights in Dumfries when Connor struck the rear of a stationary car.

The other driver smelled alcohol on his breath and called the police.

Connor, of Kirkland Road, Dumfries, was made the subject of a community payback order with a condition he carry out 80 hours unpaid work.

He was also banned from driving for 12 months.
